Winetopia | Shed 10, Auckland | 20th – 21st May
With 673 wineries sprinkled throughout New Zealand, there’s a never ending array of home-grown winning wines to tickle your fancy. With the expanse and wide dispersion of these spectacular wineries, Singapore Airlines has made it their goal to bring the best of the best directly to us at Winetopia. Winetopia aims to take us on a scrumptious adventure of the world of crimson reds and whites, and the flourishing assortment of everything in between. Showcased wineries include Alana Estate, Craggy Range, Elephant Hill, Ngatarawa, Villa Maria, Trinity Hill, Clearview Estate and many more.
Across the two days there are three different sessions you can attend:
Sessions are three and a half hours long and are an exploration of New Zealand and international wines, talks, entertainment, and beautiful food pairings. There is a selection of delicious food that has our tummy’s grumbling already… O’Connell Street Bistros’ Pork Terrine, prawn/pork rice paper rolls & Viet Ribs from Café Viet, Mahurangi Oysters, Japanese Dumplings from Akemi Gyoza, Wild Food venison and award winning Food Snob cheese and antipasto platers.
